KUCHING: Appointment of ministers in the Cabinet lineup is prerogative of the Prime Minister, said Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah.

The Minister for Women, Early Childhood and Community Wellbeing Development said as the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has decreed to form a unity government, all parties involved must heed to the advice to ensure that a unity government can be formed.

“We hoped that he (Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) is given the wisdom to carry out this very difficult task, which is choosing the Cabinet members for this unity government.

“May God grant him wisdom so that the Cabinet that will be formed later will be able to help him bring Malaysia to greater heights,” she told reporters this when asked on what ministerial roles can be expected to be given to Sarawak MPs, today.

Fatimah also noted that there was anxiety among the people in terms of security, unity and racial harmony during the time after the 15th general election (GE15) and before the appointment of the Prime Minister.

“For that reason, now we should focus on the issue of unity and we want our people to be united.

“It doesn’t matter what your religious belief of political belief is. Everybody has to come together and unite as a team to make sure Malaysia can be great again,” she added.

On Nov 24, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim confirmed that his unity government comprised Pakatan Harapan (PH), Barisan Nasional (BN), Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) and Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS).

He added that the government is also supported by MPs from Warisan, Muda and Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM).

In the GE15, PH won 82 seats, followed by BN (30), GPS (23) and GRS (six).
